A dog who got on a train and travelled to Dublin has been reunited with its owners after an appeal by Irish Rail on social media.

The dog arrived in Heuston station in Dublin on Thursday morning having boarded a train from Newbridge, Co Kildare.

Earlier, Irish Rail shared an image of the young dog on Twitter in an attempt to locate her owners.

"Is this you dog?" Irish Rail tweeted, along with an image of the black and white pup.

"This little dog travelled by train from Newbridge early this morning and is now being cared for by our Customer Information team in Heuston Station until we find its owner," the tweet added.

The picture was retweeted over 400 times and Irish Rail have now confirmed the dog's owners have been found.

"Update: Our lost dog is travelling home after being reunited with her owner who shared tales of how this little dog can scale walls and open doors!" Irish Rail tweeted shortly before midday.

"Hopefully today’s journey was the final Great Escape," the tweet added.
